Advanced concepts for trailing edge morphing wings - Design and manufacturing of test rig and test samples - Test execution

Objective

The SMyTE project aims to develop state-of-the-art SMA actuator specimen(s), undergoing controlled deformation and to perform tests on a suitably designed and assembled test rig with its related interface components to assure the characterisation of SACM and DESA demonstrators and the validation of numerical schemes used during design phase. At a later stage, it is further aimed to be applied on the trailing edge of an adaptive/morphing wing. For this reason several aspects such as fail-safe, test execution under different type of static and dynamic loads are considered reflecting in fact the future applicability of the current project.
The proposal is building on background knowledge in design and characterisation of SMA actuators and mechanisms as well as in experience in prototype static and dynamic characterisation tests.
